Brickbats to the Jacksonville Municipal Code Division
Brickbats to the Jacksonville Municipal Code Division for approving the demolition of homes in historic neighborhoods. Two homes in Springfield were recently torn down by the city. City Councilman Robin Lumb has asked code enforcement officials to try to shore up some buildings rather than tear them down. Neighborhoods Director Terrance Ashanta-Barker said the city has done a lot to keep buildings safe and stable, but it's not the city’s job to rehabilitate and renovate residential structures.
